New England IPA
Fruity and well-balanced bitterness
Today, 100 years after that Theodor Schiøtz insulted his last civil servant, his spirit is still part of these walls and our minds. Like him, we are proud to outdo conventions. This IPA is brewed with Mosaic, Motueka and Pacific Gem hop, as well as a pinch of rhubarb and elderflower, perfecting the fruity hop character. We have skipped bitter hops in order to avoid the dry bitterness.
Slightly cloudy with an almost orange colour and beautiful foam.
– Mouth Feeling
Full and slightly sparkling beer that doesn’t linger too long, making room for another sip.
A delicious scent of tropical fruits such as lemon and lime, as well as a fresh elderberry and rhubarb aroma. Further a discrete scent of dark berries, flowers and black pepper. However, the malt base is still detectable through the hop and fruity splendour.
Creamy and very fruity taste - just like a lovely summer’s day in your mouth. All the hop notes are distinct. You start by sensing the entire citrus fruits dance on your tongue, before noticing additional elderflower and rhubarb.

Facts & Knowledge
This beer is fresh and light, making it the ideal appetizer along with nuts and other salty nibbles. The lightness also goes well with starters like tartar, samosas and cheese. The beer is further ideal for main dishes from the Italian, Oriental and Mexican cuisine. This fresh NEIPA is last but not least great with a delicious steak, grilled chicken or other great café classics.
New England IPA is a cloudy beer with large amounts of hops added late on in the process after boiling, and as dry hops during maturation in the tank. This beer is the obverse of the very bitter IPAs that have invaded the beer market for the past years. An IPA without the very direct bitterness from the hops, but instead fresh aromas from tropical fruits, flowers and herbs. An IPA for everyone. Especially those, who detest bitter beer.

Description from the Master Brewer
A fresh and very fragrant beer. If you don’t fancy bitter hops, but like the aromatic effects that hops and the addition of fruit can give the beer, this New England IPA is the perfect choice. It is a new way of thinking hop addition in order to protect volatile flavourings from the hops, so you can enjoy them while drinking the beer. A fruity and floral beer for a summer feeling throughout the year.
I'm the brewer
Beer is our product. But our master brewers know the basics. Apart from the master brewers at Theodor Schiøtz Brewing, we like to invite other skilled brewers to join our processes and development.
As a master brewer, I am highly inspired by the British beer culture, in which you often come together over a pint at the local pub. British beer does in general have a very harmonic taste and you can taste the notes of all the ingredients used.
To me, the perfect beer has distinct notes from both malt, yeast and of course hops or other flowers and herbs.
